We are very honoured to welcome Mr. Janos Benisz to the Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary School Library today for a presentation to English and Social Studies classes. Mr. Benisz is a survivor of the Holocaust, the systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews and five million non-Jewish civilians by the Nazi regime and its collaborators in the years before and during the Second World War.

The visit of Mr. Benisz is made possible through a program of the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre. To find out more, please visit vhec.org
